DC Shocker:  More Extreme is Added to Already Extreme Doomsday

The beast who killed Superman is about to make his New 52 makeover debut during "Forever Evil" month, and he's sporting a new look Rob Liefeld would be proud of.



Source: What's New In The New 52: Doomsday's Return

On Friday, DC revealed the new look Doomsday would be sporting in the Villains Month spotlight issue of Batman/Superman:

 

 

Additionally, here's what DC Head Honcho and the man attempting to go two for two in bankrupting comic book companies, Bob Harras had to say:

You already know that this September, one of the Villains starring in his own special one-shot will be the infamous Doomsday.

But who is Doomsday? In The New 52, the legends surrounding this character have become stories told to terrify Kryptonians. Nobody knows who created him, where he comes from, or even dares to utter his name louder than in a whisper. But are the various myths about what the Doomsday creature is real? Was he really let loose on an army? And if nobody knows the truth behind this villain’s origin, is there really a way to stop him?

See you next week,
Bob

 

Doomsday started out as an x-treme nineties character. How do you take an x-treme nineties character and, against the very laws of physics and nature, somehow make him so much more x-treme? It's x-tremely x-treme! X-treme squared! X-X-TREME-TREME!

One can only imagine what formerly beloved character with a new extreme and terrifying design DC will unleash next upon its weary and beleaguered fanbase. It almost makes this reporter glad they have such irrational contempt for Wally West, Stephanie Brown, Cassandra Cain, and other toxic characters, which actually spares them from a terrible fate.

The horror of just thinking of it. Just imagine the 90s x-tremity that could be inflicted upon them. Inhuman, anatomically impossible bodies. Overly dramatic new origins shrouded in MYSTERY!!! The high collar. Oh that damn, damn high collar that Jim Lee so loves. The contradictory, convoluted, confusing character regression due to last minute editorial mandates. The pouches. Sweet lord almighty, the pouches.

They call me inhuman... They call me monster. [Editor's note: A man. Yessss. Was onccce a man.] What's monstrous is what's being done to the hapless and innocent characters of the DC Universe.

The horror... The horror....

Will he talk like Jar Jar Binks too? Cause that would be really evil. Annoying too.

I disagree. At least there was a somewhat attempt to make him less hulk-like.

Now he just looks literally like the Gray Maestro.

Judging from what I know about Superman's DCnU continuity, I would venture to say that it's a pretty safe guess that this version of Doomsday will be the final stage of Kryptonian Cloning. Unless they have gotten around to explaining a different reason why Supergirl was so terrified of the fact that Superboy was a clone. It would also explain why all the other aliens who come in contact with Superboy are scared of him as well, even though he is supposedly just a clone of Superman and Lois Lane.

Maybe he can get a better form eventually. This form looks so more Hulk-like than the previous one. Ugh.

I mean, I never had a problem with his original design but he has always basically looked like an elderly Hulk with bone-protrusions. :smt102

But at least a Hulk who had a nice pony tail and a nice bony beard. This literally looks more Hulk with the rags on him too.

All I can think about is how his arms could possibly move. He has solid bone ensconced around them to the point where they're now basically flailing bone clubs.
